Hyperaldosteronism is characterized by the excessive release of aldosterone hormone into the blood and the resulting rise in blood pressure. This disorder is a common cause of secondary hypertension, and often patients are initially misdiagnosed as hypertensive. The cause of hyperaldosteronism is the key factor for determining the treatment approach. Surgical treatment is an option for primary hyperaldosteronism. Where surgical excision is not appropriate or needs to be supplemented, pharmacotherapy is indicated and a polypharmacy treatment approach is frequently adopted. Numerous drug treatments are available, including aldosterone antagonists, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, and beta blockers. The hyperaldosteronism Treatment Algorithm provides insights into prescribing patterns among many treatment options.
